Modern Landscape Design

Ottawa home-owners love keeping up with modern trends.  Eliminating clutter and making sensible use of the space available is most important when starting out a plan.  Modern designs incorporate neutral colours, hard lines defined areas, and strong plants that demand attention.

Other Popular Design Trends:

 Tropical Landscaping
Sunshine, mulch, extra colour, water features

Shade, tiles, mosaics, olives, grapes

Pebbles, paths, cherry blossoms, lanterns

Roses, linear borders, an abundance of flowers and gardens

Soft Scaping vs. Hardscaping Your Backyard

Soft Scapes

Soft scapes are elements in your landscape that are living.  Essentially the flora and fauna in your yard is all part of the softer elements.  Your soft areas should work in balance with the hard elements.  A good Ottawa landscape design expert can advise you on how to balance your yard with a hard or soft design.  Some popular soft scape elements in Ottawa are: 


  • Flowers
  • Bushes
  • Shrubs
  • Plants
  • Grass


HArdscapes are the elements of your landscape that are made from materials like stone, bricks, concrete, metal & wood.  A patio project with interlock pavers and a raised planter are all hardscaping elements.  The soil and flowers in the planter, however, are soft scape elements.  Temporary physical structures like fountains and statues are not fixe and not to be considered hardscapes.  Backyards should have a good balance between hard and soft landscaping.
